NRL begins Southeast Asia study of aerosols linked to global warming
Date:9/17/2009

(WASHINGTON, DC, 09/17/09) NRL's Marine Meteorology Division has deployed the Mobile Atmosphere, Aerosol, and Radiation Characterization Observatory (MAARCO) to the National University of Singapore to begin the first comprehensive radiation and aerosol assessment in the Maritime Continent region. NRL is leading the effort to investigate ways in which to infer larger aerosol and visibility features from limited data sets, and to analyze the aerosol physical interactions and processes to aid numerical aerosol and weather predictions.

The Marine Meteorology Division, Monterey, Calif., has specifically designed and developed the unique MAARCO to be a rugged, easily transportable, flexible and comprehensive suite of instruments to make surface measurements of the radiometric and meteorological properties of the atmosphere, the microphysical and compositional properties of aerosols and the vertical distribution of aerosols and clouds. The instrumentation suite includes a LIDAR, Sun photometer, radiometers, particle probes, filter samplers, and impactors as well as a host of weather instruments.

The impact of biomass burning and pollution on the Maritime Continent is of considerable concern to global climate change researchers. The deployment of MAARCO is part of the overarching 7 Southeast Asian Studies (7SEAS) programa comprehensive interdisciplinary atmospheric sciences program to study the interactions of pollution and smoke with regional meteorology, air quality, land surface science and oceanography..

"The extreme cloud cover and complicated environment of the Maritime Continent allows for very few satellite observations of pollution and smoke to be properly ingested in the models," said Dr. Simon Chang, superintendent, NRL Marine Meteorology Division. "Field investigations will help researchers develop methods to make the best use of the limited data available and yield insight on how to constrain aerosol optical properties in
